MOU Revision Proposal

Monday, August 18, 2014

In 2013, the California Urban Water Conservation Council’s (CUWCC) Board of Directors established a Bylaws Committee to review the MOU Bylaws. The goals of the Committee were to:

  • Ensure the Bylaws were in full compliance with California non-profit corporation law; and
  • Ensure the Council maintains its current structure; improve clarity and consistency; and
  • Identify benefits of Full Membership.

Since then, the Council has engaged with outside counsel to ensure compliance with California law. The Bylaws Committee proposed a variety of changes that outside counsel recommended in order to achieve full compliance.

Tell us the types of video resources you need!

The Council is compiling water conservation related "How To" and "Do it Yourself" videos- we need your feedback.

Friday, August 15, 2014

A major part of this project is identifying gaps in subject matter and developing a list of suggested video production topics for DWR.  With that in mind, we have two special requests for you.

1. We are making one final appeal for any conservation videos that you haven’t already sent to us.  We are particularly interested in videos that fit into the following categories:

  • Non-English Language
  • California Native and/or Climate Appropriate Plants
  • Permeable Hardscapes
  • Swales
2. We want to know the types of videos that would be most beneficial for you and your customers.  We have created a short survey to collect your thoughts.   The survey is available at  It only takes a few minutes and will be a strong guide for our recommendations to DWR.  The survey will be available until 5:00 PM on Wednesday, August 27th.
